Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

The answer is going to be "it depends." Working out fasted is awesome. It does a lot of good things for us, including autophagy. If you are well adapted to burning fat, and have enough fat reserves, maybe you can get away with a long endurance... (more)

Don't go the crossfit route unless it is a really good CF gym. I recommend add in hill springs or regular sprints as a HIIT 2x a week and you should see some cardio improvements.
